Doug Flutie is harbored as one of the greatest college quarterbacks of all time as he played at Boston College. He is often remembered for his “hail mary pass” touchdown in a game against Bernie Kosar and the Miami Hurricanes that resulted in Boston College getting the win over Miami in a crazy back and forth game. A week later, Flutie ended up winning the Heisman Trophy.
Flutie also played in the NFL for 12 seasons, but never quite had the success that he did in college football. He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1986 and only played in four games. He was then traded to the New England Patriots and lasted there for two years before being released. He then went to the CFL and played there for eight years, before having one last shot in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills in 1998. He had a short run with the Bills for a few years, and eventually got traded to the San Diego Chargers and was inevitably picked up again for his very final run with the New England Patriots.
While Flutie may not be an elite quarterback in the NFL, he accomplished a lot in his football career from the “hail mary” pass, to the little moments he had like “drop kicking” a football for an extra point. Heck, he even had “Flutie Flakes” named after him. But the most important thing he has ever done is introducing the world to his daughter, Alexa Flutie. Check out a few of her pictures below and you’ll see why.
